Charlottetown and our beautiful location
Our store is located in beautiful Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Charlottetown, the Birthplace of Confederation, is the Capital City of Prince Edward Island and offers a unique experience that blends together urban and country environments. Even in downtown Charlottetown you're only 30 minutes away from some of the nicest beaches Canada has to offer.
We are located downtown in a Heritage building and after visiting our store you're only minutes from some Charlottetown's top attractions. Walking for only 5 minutes you'll find a number of local staples such as an Anne of Green Gables store, two world-famous Cows Ice Cream locations, a handful of locally owned cafés that serve delicious food and drinks and of course a large number of locally owned restaurants and pubs that serve delicious meals and locally crafted beers.
Our store is located in a Heritage building and the City of Charlottetown has gone through the history books and compiled records for many of the Heritage blocks and buildings in Charlottetown. Here is an excerpt from the City of Charlottetown website:
Tim O'Connell was one of many merchants burnt out by the Great Fire of July 1866, but by November he had rebuilt, this building the result. O'Connell's American Variety Store was aptly named, offering such diverse products as books, confectionery, looking glasses, tobacco and room papers.
